You are my beloved, you have no time to think of who you are for
thinking about what you need to do
One of the crowd in the midst of the crowd
A star, like a long lost childhood, in the midst of night,
You are my beloved, I am kissing your teeth so white,
Hidden between them a half-line from last night’s unfinished love-making

You are my beloved, my muffled love, my youth bleeding
Towards your childhood I set you flying
Your wings growing weary, you are drenched in sweat
Beside me, you wake in the night screaming
Mornings, I wave to your mingling with a metal life

You are my beloved, we stick a piece of paper in it and postpone our love
Which is lived furtively on busses and trains
Our bodies side by side unable truly to bleed
